It’s been a little over a year since we unveiled Launch MI Lab and its two-part mission: to provide professional analytical services to the life sciences industry, and to offer low-cost lab space and equipment to entrepreneurs testing their life science ideas.
Since then, we’ve enjoyed a steady stream of clients both within and beyond southwest Michigan who recognize the quality and speed of our work, particularly in mass spectrometry. We aim to build upon that foundation in 2014. My personal vision is to see Launch MI Lab become the premier life science analytical partner for the industry.
What will that industry look like? Deloitte took a look at the trends and recently posted a report on the life sciences sector.
According to Deloitte, there’s no doubt that life sciences will continue to grow as more people gaining access to health care, the population ages and new opportunities appear through emerging markets. At the same time, financial pressures on biopharmaceutical companies are affecting investments in R&D and slowing growth.
While sobering in some respects, that report gives me cause for optimism. As the industry looks for accurate, quality, cost-effective analytical services to better manage its expenses, Launch MI Lab shines as a smart option.
Here’s to a successful 2014 for all of us!
